Venezuela’s opposition leader Juan Guido announced Wednesday that he will launch a new protest against Nicolas Maduro. “We do nothing at home,” said a politician at Plaza de Los Palos Grande, east of Caracas, in his first appearance in weeks. However, the reappearance of guardio coincides with another movement: there is a wave of revisionism within the opposition, hoping to get out of the past few years’ strategy and reconsider the election participation within the framework of chavism. This position of weakening the will of the people’s leaders is wavering and has touched the core of some sectors of the main anti havest party.

In particular, pressure is being exerted within democratic action (training to abstain in the internal debate on guardio’s continued presidency of the National Assembly) and some of the first judicial branches (made up of politicians such as Enrique Capriles and Carlos okaritz) to participate in the election of California’s governor and mayor At the same time, the opposition is looking forward to the formal announcement of the alliance by Madrid Leopoldo L รณ PEZ. It is trying to protect its political capital against the attacks of critics, especially Capriles, his direct opponent within the opposition, who has increasingly expressed his doubts about guaido, A new strategy is called for, focusing on better election conditions.

The new opposition coalition will have a design in which guado and Lopez will share responsibility and strengthen alliances with some minority groups, such as radical cause and civic Council; Jesuit pastor Louis ugard, former president of Catholic University Andres belo; and; And civil society organizations on the so-called grand front.

Guaido and his environment make it clear that the will to measure himself in the votes of some of his allies is high, especially when the efforts against Maduro fail in 2019. In his speech, the politician tried to steer the tide, claiming that it was a common goal to force an agreement with chavesmo to open the door for the election date. However, he believes that these conditions have not been met at all.

According to opposition figures who do not want to be named, if guaido fails to stop democratic action and some regional leaders, he will never raise the issue of breaking with them. Instead, he will take action, wait for the result, civilly reserve differences and call for unity.

It is the demand of the international community to readjust the strategy of the opposition. Under such circumstances, Nicolas Maduro suffered the greatest setback.

With the participation of the Dominican Republic and Chile, the international contact group issued a new communique, which defined the key points of the new stage of Venezuela’s crisis: calling for the appointment of a new independent and balanced National Electoral Commission, and calling for cooperation with the United Nations A rapid and “inclusive dialogue and Venezuela led transition process leading to credible, inclusive and transparent elections” should be established.

“Members of the international contact group call on the democratic forces to unite as part of a broader and coordinated dialogue effort, If Venezuela is to make a successful transition to democracy, stability and prosperity, it will require difficult compromises. ”

Third, they have sounded an alarm to the international community and opened up a front for more actors to participate in this field. “Venezuela needs the support of a united international community. GIC expressed its continued willingness to strengthen contacts with regional partners to promote understanding and response to the situation in Venezuela. Clear and complementary international efforts are essential to help Venezuelans restore democracy and constitutional order. It will also maintain close contact with national stakeholders. ”

The announcement comes on the same day that Joe Biden’s Treasury Department overthrew the last round of stalemate left by the trump administration. Washington approved actions involving Venezuelan ports and airports to exclude the Maduro government’s National Institute of water and space from the ban imposed on January 19, the day before the Democratic Party took office.

A finance ministry official told Reuters they were adjusting sanctions and permits because they were “committed to ensuring the unrestricted flow of humanitarian supplies to Venezuela.”. The measure retains the veto on deals involving diluents in the oil industry, but is cautious about Biden’s possible policy of imposing sanctions on Venezuela: the restrictions will not be lifted completely, But on this point, there is room for pressure relief and negotiation.
